Work on the Ten Mile interchange is chugging along

Work continues on the new Interstate 84 interchange with on- and off-ramps at Ten Mile Road.
Westbound I-84 will be reduced to one lane from 10 p.m., today, Jan. 23, to 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 24, while sign poles are installed on the interstate. Restrictions will continue at night the week of Jan. 23.
All lanes on Ten Mile Road are closed between Franklin and Overland roads. The Meridian Police and Ada County Sheriff’s offices are enforcing the area. Violators will be ticketed for reckless driving.
Meanwhile, the Ada County Highway District will begin to widen Ten Mile Road between the Ridenbaugh Canal and Overland Road this month. Updates and traffic impacts from the ACHD project will be posted at under Projects and Studies.
The speed limit is 55 mph on I-84.
Idaho Sand & Gravel is the contractor on this $33.8 million project, which is expected to be complete in summer 2011.
The landscaping, under a separate $580,000 contract to Franz Witte Landscape Contracting, is set to begin this spring when the ground thaws.

Interesting. IIRC, Idaho got $1 million in stimulus that had to be used for things like curb, gutter, sidewalk, bike paths, and beautification, and it was put toward the landscaping on 10 Mile. I wonder what happened to the rest of the million.
